I had two fantastic Woodworkers this year working in their own shop, I had very little woodworking to do this year.
I created swords for campers and staff, but there is not much challenge to them. Cut out the blanks at the table-saw and the dado for the hilts. Off to the router table to shape the edge of the blade with a ⅜" round over bit and then a ⅛" round over bit for the handle and glue it up. Couple pin nails to hold it why the glue dries.
